two co-workers in california and when did to others before taking his own life. the california man behind an anti islam video that sparked local protest has been sentenced to a year in prison. and wednesday, he was ordered to spend 12 months behind bars for violating the terms of his probation from a prior conviction following a 2010 check fraud conviction, he was not allowed to use the internet. under the alias of sam basseley, he produced the "innocence of muslims" which produced outrage in muslim countries after been circulated online. hundreds of people gathered at the university of mississippi wednesday to denounce racism on campus. it was one day after heated protest against president obama's re-election. after the results were announced tuesday night, a crowd of several hundred gathered in anger with some reportedly shouting racial slurs. at least two people were arrested. with the 2012 election in the books, the price tag for combined spending by federal candidates, their parties and outside groups like super pacs totals more than $6 billion. the election's biggest private

@journal.org. talk a little bit about proposition 8 in california. as the impact what could happen this time around? guest: let me go back and say, marriage equality is no longer a partisan issue. if you look at socio-economic trends across this country, americans from all walks of life, all parts of this country, all sorts of americans, republicans, democrats, catholics, episcopalians, they all support marriage equality in majority's right now. that is probably one of the largest of allusions of has taken place since 2006 and 2008. you are right. perhaps the most high-profile marriage equality battle took place in 2008 in california around prop 8. unfortunately, we lost by just a few percentage points. as a result of that, prop. 8, a group called the american foundation for equal rights decided to launch a constitutional challenge for that vote. and it stands for is right now before the supreme court and on november 20, they will decide whether or not to take up that case. host: a paul talking about support for gay marriage. referenced that 50% of those who were polled, say it should be on the bal

, the ballot initiative process in california is so famous. i do want to say that california had a couple of controversial ones here, 1, they did not vote down the death penalty, still allowed in california. 2, it looks like they passed a tax measure to make california the most taxed state in the union. so that's controversial here in california. a bit of a surprise, considering the economy here in the golden state isn't the best. but you mention the process, the ballot process across the country. yes, definitely, same-sex marriage and marijuana both faired very well at the ballot box. maine passed it, as well as maryland and washington, all passing referendums, allowing for same-sex marriage. they legalized it again in maine, maryland and washington, and an amendment to vote against it in minnesota is too close to call at this hour. meantime, to the medical marijuana front, we know that two big states here that passed the medical marijuana were -- lost you here, montana. and in oregon, it's failing. the interesting vote with marijuana was the fact that colorado and washington allowed it
in santa barbara, california. caller: hello. good morning. i guess my comment is, and kind of glad that the spectacle of elections are over. and maybe we can start to focus on some of the serious issues that still remain. i notice you just made a comment that reid had put out an olive branch to john boehner and mitch mcconnell. i am hoping that at some point in the future that may be c-span can run some segments on the article 5 convention. i really think that we needed to a convention of state delegates to deliberate over certain issues that none of the candidates talked about. i am very concerned about proprietary source codes and electronic voting machines. i am concerned about voter fraud, i am concerned about corporate control of what makes it out of a committee to the floor for a vote and what does not. my comment is, am glad the elections are over. i hope it can start to address some serious issues. host: that is john in santa barbara. usa today lead editorial -- voters can obama a subdued second term mandate. barack obama is election in 2008 made history purity become the f

, illinois, california, and new york, the democrats are going to pick up 104 electoral college there and they did nothing there except go there for fund-raisers. that just shows you how sure we have of these states that are so blue and so red. but it's those nine states that we're talking about. that's what it's going to come down to, those nine battleground states and they are all-- with the possible exception of ohio-- all within the margin of error right now. >> pelley: norah, what do you see going into election tonight? >> one of the things i think is interesting is how much of the country has voted today before election day, the so-called early vote. it's been growing over the years. today we've seen more than 30 million people have turned out at the polls. interestingly enough, scott, the battleground state where this early vote has turned out. look at this. colorado, 77% has already voted. nevada. 72%. north carolina, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the result
-span. next is felix from california. caller: good morning. i mean democratic voter. -- i am an independent voter. what i heard from joe biden today is the fact that the problem we have always had is that the problems were caused by a republican. mitt romney -- host: thanks for the call. good afternoon caroline. caller: i am proud to be what i am. host: go ahead with your thoughts on this election. caller: my thought right now is joe biden >> tomorrow night watch election results from the presidential race as well as house, senate and governors contest across the country. we'll have coverage of president obama in chicago and the mitt romney in boston. victory and concession speeche speeches,. >> we are engaged in the process and been working first in with fema, to make an overall assessment, that 25, up to 25% of those cell towers were disabled during this process. what the fcc does and will continue to do is to work with these entities, to assess the situation on the ground and to more so use this information to see where we can do adequate for. >> commissioner mignon clyburn on issues fac

with the refiners. bp decided to sell off two of its refiners. one in texas city and the other in carson, california. historically, i haven't been a big fan of the refiner business. lately the dynamics of the industry have changed dramatically for the better. we've got an oil boom going on in this country and that's been great for the refiners because they make their money off the difference between the domestic west texas price that they pay for oil, sometimes even underneath that, and the higher global brent crude price they use to charge for refined products. that's the benchmark they price off of. right now the spread is higher than it's been in ages. great for refiners. which refiners have benefitted from bp's desperate need to raise cash? first there's marathon pete, marathon petroleum. symbol mpc. mom, peter, charlie. agreed to buy bp texas city for $2.5 billion back in october. this deal should have tremendous synergies because marathon pete already operates in this area. bp had spent $5 billion refurbishing this refinery just seven years ago. now marathon can buy it for half of that cost? w

it to their advantage in states like illinois. california is a whole different story where you have an independent commission drawing the lines there. it really will dramatically shape control of congress. >> i was simply going to make the point about illinois. the viewers don't think it's only the republicans who are redrawing districts. democrats did the exact same thing in illinois, and we'll see what the results are. sometimes they draw districts expecting a certain outcome and the voters surprise them. >> brown: while we're talking about the how, because earlier we talked about the senate in a kind of bigger picture. stu, remind us about the house situation. >> all 435 seats are up in the house but not all 435 are competitive. only about 70 or so are really worth watching for the chance of one party to steal a seat from the other party. the democrats need 25 seats in order toigate majority and presumably reinstall california, nancy pelosi as speaker be as she once was. that seems unlikely. the democrats have said we have enough seats in play, and when we get out west, california, washington,

their own supermajorities in both chambers in california and illinois. in the state of carolina, in the state of north carolina they gained a republican supermajority in the house and senate. in georgia, they appear in georgia, they appear one independent away from having one in the senate. with might winning 24 states on wednesday, no one expected the president's coattails to turn blue. republican gains in the deep, red south is kind of like running up the score. down the ballot has less to do with coattails than with parkas than with hoods. against the bitter cold that defines february and march. outside the virginia state capitol in richmond. voters are looking for leadership at all levels of governance and they vote in changes. they are not stupid. elections have consequences and they go both ways. if you think running a restaurant is hard try running four. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've eve
